Reviewed Lemon Curd Tart

May 9, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This is my first experience making a tart after I picked up a tart pan on sale a few weeks ago. I watched the chip of this tart made live on FN and hopped onto the website to make this that same night. I loved it! I slightly browned the crust too much, but it gave the tart a slight graham crackery taste. I didn't have an issues with the crust stic"

Jan 13, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I've just made this for a dinner party tomorrow night after buying some blueberries at the health food store the other day. I used a pint of blueberries and a tad extra sugar. The baking time took an extra 10-15 minutes for me, but not a problem otherwise. I made myself a portion to try before tomorrow and I absolutely loved it. I'm going to driz...

I consider myself an experienced home cook. However, I am not as skilled in breakfast as I would like to be, so I have never made biscuits before this. These were so fabulous, I am never going to buy store bought biscuits again. We are an organic family, so buying natural biscuits can be pretty pricey! I halved the recipe and paired them with home"

May 2, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I love Emeril for coming up with this winning recipe. The key to a good muffuletta is the olive mixture, the longer you let it sit, the better the sandwich. I have been to New Orleans several times and going to Central Grocery for one of their muffulettas is a family tradition. We love their muffulettas so much, we've paid premium to have them shi"

Reviewed Key Lime Pie

Mar 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was my first time making a key lime pie, but it will NOT be the last! I consider myself to be an experienced cook, but this recipe is simple enough even for a beginner. I used bottled key lime juice and added some lemon zest as well. I do recommend adding an extra Tbs or 2 of butter to the crust so it will come together better and I decreased...

Reviewed Indian-Inspired Shrimp with Coconut, Chiles and Tomato

Mar 25, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Such a great dish! The ginger was a bit strong, so I will be decreasing the amt next time. I also added some black pepper, as its the favorite spice in my household. I loved the coconut milk, it gave the shrimp such a distinct flavor. Emeril has done it again, we will be keeping this recipe as a new favorite. "

Reviewed Bacon Braised Green Beans

Mar 22, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was the perfect recipe to accompany steak and potatoes. The use of a dutch oven was a nice touch, but I wish I would have removed some of the bacon fat because they came out very greasy. I did let the green beans cook longer then listed, but only because I prefer them less crisp. I will definitely make again!"

Reviewed Banana Walnut Bread

Mar 21, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

What a yummy moist bread! I was a bit skeptical about this recipe, just because the baking time seemed so long. The bread baked for the listed time and came out delicious. I added chocolate chips to the batter, just to give it another extra "flavor" (aka, i'm a chocoholic!). I have tried other recipes, but this one has the most flavor with the best...

Reviewed Bobby's Caramel Cake

Mar 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I do not know where I went wrong with the recipe. I have experience in baking cakes and this was absolutely terrible. It was very dry and extremely crumbly. I give it two stars because the frosting was great and the flavor of the cake was there somewhat. Disappointing dessert, but I messed it up somehow because others have had results. "

Giada has done it again! I adore Nutella, so these were perfect for me. The best cookies i've ever had! To make the cookies "gooey", I decreased the cooking time to 8 mins and let them cool. Going to make again and again. "

Reviewed Red Beans and Rice

Mar 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

Hands down, an excellent recipe. My family has used this for a few years and we have had success with serving to large crowds. Once the red beans are cooked, this recipe can be made in a slow cooker and heated on low all day to draw out the flavor. Makes great leftovers too! I often make using andouille sausage and a hambone left over from Thanks...

Reviewed Sweet and Sour Pork

Mar 16, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This was such an easy and fabulous recipe. I was hesitant as this was my first time cooking sweet and sour sauce, but the results were fantastic. I used chicken in place of pork, increased the brown sugar to 3/4 cup as I like my sauce super sweet, and also added a few squirts of asian chili sauce to give it an extra kick because I only had 1 tsp of...
